Rap mogul Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter enjoyed Super Bowl XLVIII in-person last night (February 2) as the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos in a one-sided match-up.

Footage and photos of Jay and Bey lighting up the annual championship game have surfaced online.

The superstar couple, who performed the previous evening at the DirecTV "Super Saturday Night" concert, watched the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Denver Broncos in the comfort of their plush VIP suite. Bey kept casual and warm in a jacket, red pants, and a beanie with ears, while Jay threw on a sweatshirt and black cap. They posed for Instagram pics with some lucky fans and Bey put her athletic skills to the test on a mock football field. The Carters were also seen rocking out to Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers during their halftime performance. (Rap-Up)

Both Jigga and Bey made sure to let loose with their "Drunk In Love" collaboration the night before during a concert.

It was just one of many memorable moments in the full concert performance that the rapper delivered tonight at DirecTV's Super Saturday Night party. It's become a tradition for the company to throw a large Super Bowl party in a tent fronted by a music heavyweight. Reminding everyone of their show together at last weekend's Grammy's, Beyonce entered the stage and belted out a rousing rendition of "Drunk in Love." The singer and her rapper husband were giddy together on stage, smiling and nearly stopping to chuckle. Party people hoisted bespangled clutches, plastic cups and cameras in the air, falling under the rapper's spell at "DTV Arena" -- a structure the company created at Manhattan's Pier 40, constructed just for the Super Bowl.

During their on-stage appearance, Jay and Bey exchanged intimate gestures with one another.

"Any sexy ladies in New York City tonight!" Jay Z asked the audience at around 12:50 a.m., just about halfway through his hour-long set. "I said," he reiterated, "Any sexy ladies in New York City tonight?" And in Beyoncé strutted -- dancing, singing and flirting with her hubby. The two rapped and kissed and then she sauntered off stage with a big smile. It wasn't steamy like their recent Grammy duet. This was more of a sweet moment in a weekend packed with star-studded moments. "Make some noise for Queen Bey!" said Jay Z as she exited the stage. The party was such a hot ticket that Mark Cuban, co-host of the bash, told USA TODAY, "We turned away at least 5,000 people." (USA Today)

Despite high expectations for an intense battle, the Broncos fell to Seattle 43-8.

Peyton Manning is 37 years old. He has had four neck surgeries. He has admitted that he doesn't have the arm he used to. Despite all that, it took Manning, the runaway Most Valuable Player of the 2013 season, until Sunday night to look truly helpless--like he was staring at something even he, the most prepared quarterback in NFL history, couldn't navigate. It appeared as though the quarterback who had always thought of everything had nothing left. Super Bowl XLVIII was supposed to be Manning's crowning achievement, the second career championship for one of the game's great quarterbacks. A legacy game. (Wall Street Journal)
